Join us this week as we welcome the rock band, Madrone. Hailing from Roanoke, VA., band members John "JD" Sutphin - vocals/guitar, Blaine Davis - Bass Guitar, Joey Coleman - Drums, and Dana Cox - Guitar, Madrone is ethereal, with a sound that emanates strong melodies that are supported by slamming catchy drum beats and modern, almost industrial bass lines. Literally born into music, as the grandson of the late prominent bluegrass and country artist Jim Freeman, Sutphin has always had the desire to create and perform music in his veins. Their hit single “November” best depicts the band’s range with Sutphin describing it as “everything we do as a band. From the ethereal lead and synth lines, to heavy guitars and subject matter very close to my heart, it's everything I ever wanted in a Madrone song.” “November” is just one of many of the masterpieces created by Madrone in the past decade. The group has spent nine years writing and recording two full length albums and two EPs and have just released their latest album "A Light in the Sky" which is available now on iTunes and other major media outlets. We will talk to them about their upcoming schedule, get a behind the scenes look at their music, feature their latest songs, and ask them to share their message for the troops. Please be sure to visit Madrone at http://madroneonline.com/ and spread the word.
